Abstract

Successful recovery from workload promotes well-being and functional capacity. It requires breaking away from work and restoration of resources used up at work. Even a short vacation is beneficial. Physical activity and performing tasks bringing self-pleasure will promote vacation effects towards well-being. The more loaded the worker, the longer is the necessary period of breaking away from work. Since the vacation effects towards well-being vanish quickly, it is good to allocate vacations throughout the year, taking care of having breaks and opportunities for recovery also during everyday life.
